Maps & Atlases announce North American tour dates ——- (BVC SXSW & Metro included)

Maps & Atlases @ Lollapalooza 2011 (more by Grant MacAllister)

As previously mentioned, Maps & Atlases‘ sophomore LP, Beware and Be Grateful, hits stores on April 17 via Barsuk Records. Visit our early-February post to check out the album’s cover art, tracklisting, and a stream of its lead single “Winter.”

To quote ourselves:

Maps & Atlases will kick off a short string of Midwest dates in March, which takes them down to Austin, TX for SXSW 2012. A two-week European run has been set for April and we can expect a full North American tour in May.

All of the above holds true and as BrooklynVegan announced, they’ll join JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound on the bill of our BV Chicago SXSW day party at Hotel ‘Vegan.’

After SXSW as part of their May headlining run, the group will play a big hometown show at Metro on May 11. Tickets go on sale this Saturday (March 3), at noon CST.
